The weather in Boston has been wicked gawjus. There is no other way to describe it. If you are in New England I hope you are able to enjoy the day. Sergio and I have headed to Provincetown for the day with our house guest. I hope you are having a great day wherever you are.
Since the spring Sergio and I have been (ever so slowly) remodeling out kitchen and dining area. The project has proven to be such a huge headache I can no longer watch HGTV without shouting bullsh*t when I see their talkshow hosts gush about how much they love remodeling projects.
Fortunately we are now in the home stretch, but we need a contractor to install reinforced supports for a bar we are having built. If you have a suggestion, leave a comment or email me directly at email@example.com. I’ll be more than happy to buy you a thank you drink if we use your reference.
Marina Bay in Quincy is located seven miles from downtown Boston. Originally owned by the US Navy, it closed long ago like most of the military outposts in New England, and it remained neglected until the early 1990s when Marina Bay was proposed. Sergio and I had never been to Marina Bay until we were invited by Dorchester native and Grammy Award winning DJ, Clinton Sparks, who recently became part owner and investor in several of the entertainment facilities; most notably the newest club in Marina Bay, a hookah bar called blue.
If you come down to check out blue or one of the other restaurants, come at dusk. The marina offers some fantastic views of Boston’s Back Bay skyline.

Provincetown’s 15th Bear Week starts today and runs through Sunday, July 19th. If you are visiting Ptown for Bear Week I would suggest you check out the Provincetown Bears website.
The website shares information about everything you might want to know including parties, entertainment and dining options.
You can view their calendar of events (which is very thorough) here.
Some Bear Week highlights I’d like to point out include:

Sergio’s nephew will arrive later this evening to visit us before he flies back to Brazil. His visit may mean that we need to head toward all that craziness over by the Hatch Shell but I’m hoping we can camp out at a BBQ.
If you celebrate the holiday – enjoy the time away from work and weekend.
